Police have identified the man whose boat was found washed up on shore near Sally’s Cove just before 11 a.m. this morning.
Richard Crocker, 45, of Meadows had left the marina in Summerside on Wednesday and was reported missing on Thursday after he failed to reach his destination of Trout River. He was travelling in a 24-foot cabin cruiser.
He remains missing.
Lieut. Jennifer Fiddler, a Canadian Forces public affairs officer, said the incident report from the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax says that wreckage from the boat was strew all over the shore.
Fiddler said at the time there was no sign of the lone occupant and that a search for the man was continuing.
